The Sober Diaries How one woman stopped drinking and started living Synopsis

This book is the bravely honest story of a year in Clare's life. A year that started with her quitting booze and then being given the devastating diagnosis of breast cancer. By the end of the year she is booze-free and cancer-free, she no longer has a wine belly, is two stone lighter and with a life that is so much richer, healthier and more rewarding than ever before. She has a happier family and a more positive outlook. Sober Diaries is an upbeat, funny and positive look at how to live life to the full. Interwoven within Clare's own very personal and brilliantly comic story is research and advice as she discovers the answers to questions like: How do I know if I'm drinking too much? How will I cope at parties? What do I say to friends and family? How do I cope with cravings? If I stop drinking will I lose weight? What if my partner still drinks? And many more.

The Sober Diaries How one woman stopped drinking and started living Press Reviews

I related beyond belief to your stories and read all your posts that day at once. * Gill * And she was doing it with grace and humour and humility and not only was it beautiful to watch, it gave me hope. * Freedom0915 * What I would like to impress upon readers is the generosity you give in staying with us. You started your blog as a self help, and it worked, but it became a support for others and you have kept that help current and fresh. * Jacs60 * I felt like I had in a strange way come home, knowing there were people like me out there. * Laura B * The relief & hope that came from realising that I was not alone was indescribable. * Catherine K * Sober Mummy is what came between me and the bottle. * Sober at 54 * What does a forty-something man have in common with a mummy of three? I'm not sure, but having struggled with alcohol for several years having tried moderation forums, counselling, and even a couple of AA meetings - none of which worked - something about her brutal honesty (which is often funny) resonated with me. * Vincent * Reader Reviews * : *
